Sight Writing: A Conversation

Nina Katchadourian, Jonathan Lewis, Duane Michals, John Pfahl

Four artists in the exhibition Sight Reading discuss rewriting the rules of photography. With their overtly staged, sequenced, idea-driven photographs, Duane Michals and John Pfahl dramatically expanded the imaginative range of the medium in the 1960s–1970s. For Nina Katchadourian and Jonathan Lewis, who were born in that era, photography provides only one of many ways to work in a very different, densely networked media environment.

The exhibition Sight Reading: Photography and the Legible World will be open for program attendees before the event and until 6 pm.

This program is a part of the weekend long anniversary celebration, 10 Years of the New Morgan, featuring free admission all weekend, guided tours, and public programs. Click here for more information and a schedule.
